UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre will regulate Jake Shields with the Gi-funk era

via graciebarraescondido.com

"I’m a mixed martial artist. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is my favorite sport, so I want to become better at it, and especially for this fight. I’m fighting an expert in grappling, so I want to be able to use Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to come for a submission. Jake Shields calls his grappling American Jiu-Jitsu, because he doesn’t train with the gi. Me, I want to know American Jiu-Jitsu, but I’m using Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I’m training with the best on the sport right now. I believe [training with the gi] makes your game more technical, and I believe it’s very important."

Gi whiz, it looks like UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre (via Tatame.com) isn't fooling around when it comes to preparing for his UFC 129 title fight against Jake Shields this Saturday night (April 30) in Toronto. Much of the talk heading into their 170-pound championship bout is the threat of Shields' submission game. Can "Rush" use the techniques he's refining in the gi to repel the onslaught of Jake's American Jiu-Jitsu? Or will he "gi"-ve up on fight night? Let's hear your opinion on the grappling aspect of this upcoming mega-fight.
